Color Throwdown

We have a really happy color combo for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge and a super sun room photo for inspiration by our hostess, Vickie! I am chomping at the bit to be able to enjoy my own sun room again!  Spring just doesn't want to make an appearance this year!  We got walloped again with more snow on Monday, so my card was a big effort to think spring!

I had these two MFT stamp sets (and Die-Namics) for many weeks and never inked them up until now!  How sad is that?!  So, big thanks to Vickie for choosing colors that fit perfectly!  I tweaked the sketch for MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge from 2/26 and went with a one layer card - popping up the leaves and sunflower with foam dots.  I added Cinnamon Stickles to the center and the jury is still out if that was a good move.   
We are thrilled to announce a new guest designer for the month of March!  Welcome to Gloria Stengel!  You will love her fabulous style on her Scraps of Life blog and I can't wait to see what she creates for CTD!

Hi there I am so delighted I found your site, I really found you by accident, while I was browsing on Google for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say thanks Cardsharing Server for a remarkable post and an all-round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don't have time to browse it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it.

Fab job on the colors and the sketch, miss Wanda! Love that you used the zig zag image--I must remember to get that out and use it!

Tammy Hershberger said...

What a beauty, Wanda! And you had me kicking myself for not remembering that I have this stamp/Die-Namics set, too... it's perfect for these colors!

Broni said...

You used the sketch and color palette to perfection, Wanda! I LOVE how the colors pop against all that white!!
